Hey Guys!

I’m Austyn and I’m the newest member of the 3WZ team! I’m a Jersey girl, born and raised in Voorhees NJ. I studied communications at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte for two years before I went back home to the good ol’ garden state and finished up my last two years at Rowan University studying Radio/Television/Film. It was there where I first caught the radio bug. On a whim in 2015, I joined the school’s student-run radio station and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Fast forward 4 years, and I’m here in State College livin’ the dream and hanging out with you every weekday from 2-6pm!

For some personals, I’m the oldest sibling of 3, obsessed with Leonardo DiCaprio, and I’m a cat mama to a lovely little grey lady named Luna. When I’m not at work, you’ll most likely catch me at home with her. That, or hanging out in Philly/Jersey visiting my family and friends.

Some of my faves:

TV Shows: Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Black Mirror,

Movies: Titanic, Cinema Paradiso, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Django Unchained, Blue Jasmine, The Departed, The Lion King, and a lot more

Books: Twilight, 50 Shades of Grey (yeah, don’t judge me), Water for Elephants, The Outsiders

Food: Ribs, sushi, ice cream, hot pot

Colors: Teal, cobalt blue, periwinkle

Songs: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ by Queen, ‘Flightless Bird American Mouth’ by Iron & Wine
